[quote=“TwoTongues”]At long, long, long, long, LONG last, Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) at 92 has bit the dust:
Longest serving congressperson in history - 9 times in the Senate since 1954, back when African-Americans were called black folks were called “colored” and worse - former “Exalted Cyclops” of the KKK (awesome titles for such a shitty organization), voted against the Civil Rights Act, and so much more… Much to be said about the guy in other threads.[/quote]
Ah, the esteemed President Pro Tempore of the Senate and King of Pork Barrel politics has finally bit the dust. The pure hypocrisy of the Liberal Eastern Establishment media is out for all to see. When Jesse Helms died, did any obits in the liberal papers laud him as one of the best Senators in terms of outreach to his constituents? When Strom Thurmond died, did the papers forgive him for earlier stances so easily? Fuck no. Let
s not forget the real Robert C Byrd--one that Pelosi, Obama, and Biden arent bringing up today and one which the papers are only briefly touchhing upon.
